Yes that is what I used.  You just apply it with a piece of a coton diaper for a real thin layer. If you spray it it will get to heavy.  Sharkhide has a website. I have called and they are very helpful if you have questions or concerns.  If you try it let me know what you think.  Good luck,,, Scoop

I purchased my springs from Camaro Specialties three years ago. I treated them and installed  them and ran the car for two years. Last fall I completely stripped the car for a full restoration. I just re installed them. The pictures are the same spring. I only wiped them down with laquer thinner and applied a fresh coat of Sharkhide. Pictures do not always show exact color.  The sharkhide keeps the original color of the spring. If you see them in person they look llike bare steel. Hope this answers your question. I will send another picture with different light which makes them look a little darker.   Thanks, Scoop

As far as a protective finish for the leaf springs I used a product called Sharkhide. It is a clear liquid  that is you apply to bare metal. It goes on like laquer thinner and is absorbed into the metal.The metal will not rust and leaves the natural look. I purchased my springs from Camaro Specialities and cleaned them with laquer thinner to remove all the oil and used an air hose to get everything out from between the leafs. Then I flooded  the Sharkhide between the leafs and again used a air hose to force the sharkhide for complete coverage between the leafes, and then applied it to the rest of the springs and wiped everythng down.  They look geat and you don't have to worry about rust and keeps the natural look. I have not figured out how to post pictures but if anyone wants to see what they look like they can e mail me and I will sent them.   Thanks, Scoop

You are right. There seems to be many things the judges say are correct buy contradict many documented original cars. Not saying I agree with the judges but just wanted to let you know what they look for.  Thanks, Scoop
52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear Wheel Well Plugs - Before or After Undercoating? on: December 21, 2012, 09:14:54 PM
I have been told by the Camaro Nationals Judges that the wheel well plugs need to have undercoating on them to be correct. Scoop

58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Red Oxide primer on interior or 68 Camaros- Jonn Z and Ed Please respond. on: June 25, 2012, 07:15:04 PM
Can John Z and Ed comment on the use of red oxide primer on the interior of the 68 Camaro. I have pictures of my car when it was taken apart for restoration and it had a light coating of red oxide primer or some type of rusty red looking primer under the headliner, around the interior and doors, some traces under the rear package tray and under the dash.  This weekend I watched the talked to the judges at the Camaro Nationals and was told they did not accept any red oxide primer anywhere on the car as they did not use red oxide until 69, and that the primer should be dark gray. Are they correct? We painted everything back the way we found it and want to know if I have to change it to dark gray to be correct. Any help would be greatly appreciated before we complete the restoration.  Thanks for all the help!  Scoop
